“They got married, perched on the edge of the temple, with an audience of friends and family, and what a spectacular spot to tie the knot. Flowing with flowers and magical touches, guests and bridal party alike had to walk through a dark and mysterious grotto before heading up to the flower-adorned structure.” – Words by Emma of Big Bouquet Photography
Showcase | Axnoller | Katharine Davies
The brief for the flowers was extravagance without being contrived. This effect is assembled by varying different elements: cyclamen in gold gilded tins, single stem bottles with peonies and ranunculus, a multitude of candlesticks in blush and cranberry, and those huge pedestals overflowing with naturalistic spring blooms.
“I must say, this display was stupendous! Incredible to think it was all seasonal flowers!”

We would definitely, without a doubt, recommend Caroline for any event you are planning.”

You absolutely nailed my vision without stress or even much discussion. Beyond you creativity, I enjoyed working with you and appreciated your presence – and bringing the bouquet just in the nick of time! You are calm and competent and made me feel the same. It almost makes me want to get married again. I thought the flowers were the most beautiful I’ve ever seen.”

As if gathered from the meadows, this wedding had various tones of pale yellow roses, and small daisies. Hinton St George Church was fully decked out, gate posts, an avenue of sheperds crooks, pedestals, fonts and window sills all captured by the fabulous Jessica at Red Rabbit Photography.
“Caroline was a pleasure to work with and had a real eye for making our ideas come to life. Our flowers were absolutely perfect. A story told as the first arrangements on the gates of the church welcomed us in their glorious abundance while others led us to the church door. The shades of the colour that Caroline chose for bouquets and arrangements were just impeccable. My advice to anyone planning a wedding would be ” just leave it to Caroline!”

What I do know is that flowers make everything better. As you can probably tell from my choice of branding, I adore flowers. I am still very much learning how to grow and capture their beauty which is why I often leave it to the professionals. Are you ready for some stunning inspiration?” – Words by Phoebe at So You’re Getting Married

“Caroline was the only florist I met with who was able to work creatively around my budget, she came up with ideas where we could save money but still have flowers with impact. She did that with absolute aplomb on the day – I couldn’t believe how beautiful and unusual the flowers were, our guests were genuinely amazed by them.
Most importantly Caroline really listened to what I wanted regarding colour and the flowers that I wanted to include because they meant something personal to me. Caroline was amazing at answering any questions I had no matter how basic, and was incredibly generous with her time. I would 100% recommend Fleur Provocateur to anyone.”
